Storey's novel Pauline is one of my favorites, and without comparison in her body of work; however, this one (which I have been seeking for years) is very appealing. Storey knows her orphans! I particularly like stories where the descendants of people who stopped getting along actually meet and establish a relationship, as here.

Again, one of those orphan books. Loved this as a child, bought it as an adult and still loved it.

Margaret Storey is the author of several books for children. Neil Gaiman has cited her as an influence: "Margaret Storey is more or less out of print these days, alas. I loved her when I was about seven or eight, and am looking forward to finding out how much of her stuff has wound up in mine."

Jill Staynes and Margaret Storey write under the pen names Susannah Stacey and Elizabeth Eyre.
